While interest rates are still close to historic lows … they are likely to rise in the coming year as the economy improves — a point many in real estate have stressed in the last few years. — “To List or Not to List: Brokers weigh in on putting new properties up for sale in the summer,” The Real Deal, Aug. 1, 2011.

NEW YORK — Ask 10 brokers if the summer is a good time to list your property and you will get 10 different opinions.

Some feel the summer slows down as many potential buyers and sellers are on vacation. Others feel that with a reduced number of listings on the market, there is less competition and therefore more activity.

It’s an interesting debate and one that really has no correct answer. My personal opinion has always been that there is never a bad time to list a property. This is especially true in Manhattan where the market seems to be less cyclical.

Sales occur 12 months a year and factors such as weather, holidays and vacations tend to be of less importance when it comes to the New York market.

If you or someone you know has been considering putting their home up for sale but are concerned about listing it at just the right time, give me a call. I would be happy to address your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the current market value of your home.

In the meantime please enjoy the article below which continues this discussion in greater detail.
